BAT Logistics donated more than 1,500 items and $1,140 to the Stephen Center in Omaha, Neb., this week as a result of BAT’s annual donation drive.

Throughout the month, BAT team members brought in non-perishable food, clothing, bedding, cleaning supplies, socks, hats, gloves, tooth brushes, tooth paste, shampoo, soap, and other items for the annual donation drive. Individual team members also donated a total $140, and BAT added $1,000 to the monetary donation.

Stephen Center partners with the community, families and individuals to overcome homelessness, addiction and poverty. Items the organization needed were found on its wish list.

At BAT Logistics, we are thankful for everything we have, including our amazing team members and customers, and do whatever we can to give back throughout the year. Papillion-Lavista Schools Foundation, Alex Strong (Alex Lopez family cancer treatment), Dollar General Literacy Foundation, Southwest Omaha Rotary Club, Bart Sullivan c/o Ohanlon, and Hughes Family Fundraiser all benefited from charitable contributions from BAT this year.
